I just discovered Common Craft, a husband and wife duo who have created a business out of explaining complicated things in easy-to-understand ways using fun videos.
Yesterday, a friend asked me how to subscribe to my blog. I said “Click the RSS feed in the top right corner,” wrongly assuming that she should know about RSS. Her response… “What in the world is RSS?” So I forwarded her the “RSS in Plain English” video from Common Craft.
Check out the “Podcasting in Plain English” video below. I love what the LeFevers have done with this venture. They’ve made explaining things like blogs, wikis and LinkedIn not only understandable – at least on a surface level – but each video is only three-to-five minutes long, which is a nice, bite-sized length of time.
If you want to see more of their work, visit The Common Craft Show page and scroll down.
